The difference in health insurance premiums for rural and urban

Rural Americans are really getting a terrible, unaffordable deal under Obamacare. (And I supported the ACA). This would be an easy story to do since all you need to do is enter a few facts into esurance.com and then "edit" the zip code to see what the same family would pay in rural vs urban areas.

 

These are my facts:

Premium increase of $633 per month under Obamacare.

 

Facts: Family of three in Colorado, zip code 81321. All males, years of birth 1954, 1989, 1995. Policy premium in 2013 BCBS $390, policy canceled. Lowest policy premium on the exchange for 2014 $1,023. Increase $633. Gross income $78,400, no subsidy. Premium over 15% of gross income.

 

Run the numbers on esurance.com (or the Colorado exchange). Make sure you select coverage for 2014.Then change the zip code to Denver 80201. Lowest policy premium for 2014 $642.

 

Conclusion: Rural Americans are being greatly harmed by the ACA.
